Not a rossi fan but I've to ski on them for trip in europe within the ski industry. I've to reserve my setup asap.
coach, 200 pds, 5'11.
ref: line mothership 195, prophet90, influence 105, gs racestock etc.
style: towards modern using traditional race techniques.
I'm looking for: early rise rather than rocker, above 185 lenght, metal plate, twintip and between 100-110 waist.
So they're the exp98 coming out of the bunch. My bad, but I'm judgemental about'em.
They have traditonal shape, not enought tail tip for safe switch landings, tips look pretty slalomish and just by looking at 'em, I feel like the arc would increase into much shorter radius at high speed. I don't want to bomb on a slalom ski.
Squad 7's are very nice tho... but 120mm won't be appropriated... I migh leave my clients back.
Super7.. nah.. the rocker pintail isn't my style.
So according blister's excellents reviews, the Scimitar looks pretty decent but the larger size is 181...
Just want something to have fun on sidecountry, that carve some groomers, cut icy bump fields and finish the run through the park. And defenetly damp at speed.
If you spent time on one of rossi's skis and you kinda like the same riding, i'm looking forward about your comments.
